Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is version
5.0.x prior to 5.0.18, 5.1.x prior to 5.1.11, 6.0.x prior to 6.0.13,
6.1.x prior to 6.1.10, or 7.0.x prior to 7.0.5-h2. It is, therefore,
affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the GlobalProtect web portal
due to improper validation of user-supplied input when
handling requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this, via a crafted request, to cause a denial of
service. (VulnDB 135053)

- A flaw exists in the command line interface (CLI) when
parsing certain SSH command parameters. An authenticated,
remote attacker who has administrative privileges can
exploit this, via a crafted request, to execute arbitrary
OS commands with root privileges. (VulnDB 135055)
